After a job well done on last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are currently in negotiation talks with Warner Bros to direct the forthcoming Flash stand-alone movie, Flashpoint.

Warner Bros haven’t been in too much of a rush in finding the right fit to take the helm of The film – which seess Ezra Miller reprising his role – as Miller has been preparing for another one of their blockbuster favourites, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald.

The studio had originally eyed Ben Affleck to direct but after he turned down the job. Rick Famuyiwa was then hired to direct but he then walked away from the project so the hunt was back on. and they decided to also go with a new direction with the script which has been drafted by Joby Harold. With Daley and Goldstein’s successes with the comedic tone of Spider-man: Homecoming it could turn out this is the aim for Flashpoint too.

Created by writer Robert Kanigher and penciler Carmine Infantino, The Flash aka Barry Allen first appeared in DC Comics Showcase #4 (October 1956), after appearing in TV series The Flash’s latest incarnation came in 2016’s Justice League alongside other DC heroes, Batman, Superman, Wonder Women, Cyborg and Aquaman.

Daley and Goldstein have a long-running background with comedy with Vacation which was part of the National Lampoon’s film series and starred Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Chris Hemsworth and Ed Helms. They have also directed the upcoming film, Game Night which stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams.
